steegness chat

So I noticed that my host offers a number of “value-added services”, which translates into “Open-Source stuff we can automate, making it free and no work for us.” I’ve popped one of those things in, phpOpenChat, and called it “Steegness Chat”. The theory is that it should operate like a normal chat room, just over the web. I have no clue how much of a resource drain this might be, but it’s worth letting it fly for a day or two.

Users have to register, and click a link in a confirmation email. Nothing major.

I plan on trying it out tomorrow while everyone (including me) is at work. I’m going to see if I can find some way to rip the status so you can see how many people are in chat from the front page, but don’t hold your breath.
